Faith in the power of the activity is strong throughout all sectors of the population. The president of Russia’s Cold Treatment and Sports Winter Swimming Federation, Vladimir Grebyonkin, said it is impossible to fall ill after dipping into icy water on Epiphany. Impossible!?

Vladimir Grebyonkin went on to say “Physicists have established that on Epiphany the crystalline structure of water changes on Earth, including in the human organism that consists of 75% water. Water self-purifies, so even an unprepared person won’t catch a cold when swimming in cold water on Epiphany”.

I love the pictures but I’m still not tempted funnily enough.
